I finally got my copy of Recover Your Good Heart this week and I've been enjoying what Jim Robbins has to say. I haven't gotten very far into the book yet but I would like to share some excerpts that you may enjoy.
"Notice that salvation is a rescuing of the heart, for when you rescue the heart you rescue the person." (page 21)
"I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart. (Jeremiah 24:7) (page 24)
"To return to God with a new heart is to return to the life we most truly desire. The Christian now wants God more than anything - in spite of his contrary actions, doubts, or false convictions - for he now has a heart for God. He may be choosing old convictions and habits that deny his new desires, yet the externals can no longer dictate the internal realities: He is a new creature with a rescued and redeemed heart. So when we speak of 'salvation,' we must speak of it beyond mere terms of forgiveness. Salvation is a rescuing of the heart, and therefore, the entire person." (page 24)
